GruntDoc: Burge Bandwagon!

I have given this at least a full week of intermittent thought, and having looked at the major declared candidates I am pleased to announce my early and unreserved endorsement for President: David Burge, of Iowahawk fame.

burge08First, I spent literally minutes enjoying his announcement of an exploratory committee, and the proposed Campaign Platform is not any dumber than a lot already out there. Additionally, since it ignores healthcare, I figure Future President Burge is either laissez-faire or negotiable, and either way I can help to make a difference. But, I can only make a difference I am able to get into the cabinet early, and I’m thinking HHS Secretary, thus my early endorsement.

Plus, he’s a astonishing writer and a gearhead to boot. His Coupe of Justice is an impressive piece of work, and his support of the troops goes beyond endorsing magnets for humvees, so he’s there for the troops, which matters to me.

I urge you to consider my new pal David Burge (the Burge Urge, catchy!), and it’s either me or Doc Lee for HHS Secretary, and I’d gladly be Surgeon General if HHS Secretary is out.

So, vote Burge!

Update: Surgeon General!  Better.  Fewer meetings, nice Uniform.


  1. […] I am very tired of reading political diatribes on otherwise worthy medical blogs. If you’re going to do them, please tell us in big letters that a) it’s political, not medical, therefore out of your area of specialized knowledge and just a muddled recapitulation of what others of your particular political bent have already said (and have said better), and b) tell us if you’re kidding. The one I read tonight I had to read twice it was so bad. I was sure it was a joke. Apparently not, which is a pity. Do us all a favor and just comment in the forums at your favorite “me, too” political place. That’s what I do, as a service to you, my dear readers. Nobody comes here to see what I think about any politics outside medicine, and I respect all my readers enough to not insult the half who won’t agree with me if I did. Oh, and my presidential endorsement remains. […]
